I lost my license because of 2 drinking offenses and did not know who to hire to help me. A friend recommended that I should hire Steven Schwartz and I am so glad that I did. He was very knowledgeable and guided me through every step I had to take in the process. He helped me get my restricted license in the first hearing and also represented me in the 2nd hearing. I just recently had my FULL PRIVILEGES RESTORED!. I was even considering not hiring an attorney and that could have been disastrous. He was very professional and responded quickly to any question that I had. I also feel his rates were very reasonable. THANKS AGAIN STEVE!!!
Steven is an amazing lawyer. He gave me a run through of all the possible outcomes, and what we were going to shoot for. We got the best possible outscome for my case - a charge of transporting/possession of marijuana. Currently out on bond, but with modifications to the drug testing. Even though I need to drug test, I am still able to use marijuana because I have my medical card. Absolutely unheard of in Novi, and I was very surprised that it worked out this way. Considering that I need it, this was extremely helpful.
Through out the process he truly seemed concerned for my wellbeing and over the entire situation did everything he could to keep me informed and not going crazy.
I would absolutely reccommend him to anyone.
I was recommended to steven from one of my good friends that had been charged with almost the exact charge that I was facing. Before I had spoken with steven for the first time I had interviewed seven lawyers and he was the last one on my list. He was by far the BEST one I had talked to all day
(Even better than my previous lawyer). He had me sold instantly. He was confident, informative,honest, smart and made me feel like what I was facing was nothing he couldn't handle. From the very first phone call he told me what he was capable of getting me if things went as planned, and after a LONG rough journey he stuck with me the whole time and got me exactly what he had said from the beginning; A CLEAN record. Steven went above and beyond with my case and allowed me to contact him whenever needed which was the number one most important thing. Most lawyers you barely can get a hold of, Steven answered me every single time within minutes. Every time we were in court i never had to do anything, he had full control and knew exactly what he was doing. I will forever recommend him and my appreciation for his hard work will never end. I promise you he is worth every penny plus more and every second of your time; Because of Mr. Schwartz my future in the medical field will now continue as planned.
Steven Schwartz help me in a life changing experience and was there for me every time I call he was there to listen an very understanding he lift me up when I was down he worked with me on payment plans very outspoken in court handle the situation in a professional way if can recommend anyone is Steve Schwartz to be the lawyer of choice once again I would like to thank him for the excellent job straight forward an to the point
Steve made sure our son was given the best possible defense. Steve always responded to me immediately. He knew what he needed to do to get the best result for my son's case and if I had any questions he answered me right away. He also worked with a court appointed attorney on another case my son was involved in and ended up getting that case resolved with a misdemeanor instead of a felony and my son is serving jail time instead of going to prison.
Mr.Schwartz was straight up with me from the start. I brought him my case scared that I was about to go for a long time and he told me he'll do his best to keep me out and most likely i won't be going to jail. But not only he kept me out but he also got the charge lower but after I finish my probation it'll be off my record. Plus he didn't charge me a arm and a leg to be my lawyer and he's a great person who understands and he's really good at what he does.
Mr. Schwartz is an excellent attorney in so many ways. I was in deep trouble with the State of Michigan having a high BAC and two felonies with no prior record however, these charges were very serious and scary. Mr. Schwartz refused to give in and fought for a 7411 on the felonies and assured me that everything will workout. God bless him because everything did and after it was all said and done I received very little probation and no type of classes or community service. I realize my mistakes and I also own them however, having to walk through these tough doors with a great defense attorney made all the charges that I was facing not so horrifying thus, I am able to move forward with my life still intact.
I hired Steven on behalf of my son for a driver’s license issue that could have had major for a long time, last minute, and Mr. Schwartz was informative, attentive and he delivered an A+ outcome (charge was reduced significantly). In addition to his professionalism and well-proven expertise, his compassion and communication with me was outstanding. I couldn't be in court with my son that day because of a work commitment, but Steven worked directly with my son when I couldn't be there, and communicated with me through the entire process. They were in and out of the court very quickly and I had a text from Steven immediately letting me know the outcome. This man is a professional who will get the job done and does it with integrity. I HIGHLY recommend Steven Schwartz!
I had a violation of probation of failing an alcohol test 3 months into a 12 month probation for DWI. I was scared to death what might happen going back in front of the judge. After lots and lots of research I found Steven Schwartz to be the best man on paper for me. I have to believe myself first so I called and met him. He is one hell of a good man and responds better than anyone could in his position. Very impressive. At court he was nice yet very confident in what he does. Did his job professional and got the charge minimized to a few hours in jail but at the same time got me released from probation 7 MONTHS EARLY!! I was shocked! If you need professional help he gives you that for sure. Thanks Steve!
Mr. Schwartz was amazing. He knows the law and makes it work for you. He is compassionate and cares about his client as well as their family. He communicates with you and returns all calls quickly. We would highly recommend him to anyone who is in need of legal help.
